Freelance / TC Websites
Founded TC Websites LLC to build small business websites. My work included launching sites for new businesses & helping larger companies like Popeye's Chicken & Old El Paso improve their existing sites.
Milestone manufactures TV & projector mounts and projector screens (Chief, Sanus & Da-Lite brands). I conducted user research & designed branded sites for them and their partners including Best Buy, Dell, and Sony.
I worked as a User Experience Design Intern for Techies.com, an early job search startup. Then I designed websites for the University of Minnesota’s College of Liberal Arts, which required user-testing focused on web accessibility.
My enthusiasm for computers started with the earliest Apple & Mac computers for gaming and as design tool to create posters, fliers, and artwork. This creativity transitioned online when I got my first modem and taught myself to code.
